Mailman is not broken just because it does not work the way you want 
it to with the browser you have chosen to use. If you can show how 
the implementation mailman uses is fundamentally wrong with a 
reference to an applicable RFC, I think then it would be appropriate 
for the mailman developers to address the issue. Until then, this is 
a problem with your browser and the browser developer is the 
appropriate organization to deal with the problem. Even if you did 
come up with such a reference and mailman is fundamentally broken, 
there are other issues that are likely to take priority over what is 
really just a minor annoyance.

This list, being a support list for mailman, is thus not the 
appropriate place to address this issue. Filing a bug report or 
feature request with the developers of Firefox (or any other 
similarly affected browser) is the right course of action.
